| Are there the VP couplings in the psi(3770) non-charmed decays hidden behind the current experiment measurements? - D. Zhang A global analysis of the full amplitudes for $e^+e^- \to$ VP (Vector and Pseudoscalar) channels at $\sqrt{s}$ =3.773 GeV and 3.670 GeV, which were measured by the CLEO-c Collaboration, shows that those measurements are essentially nontrivial for searching for the $\psi(3770)$ non-$D\bar D$ decays. Unlike the nearly negative verdict on the $\psi(3770)$ strong decays to the VP channels in the original analysis of the CLEO-c data, there exist some unusual solutions that predict the remarkable stren...

Liang The speed of sound of a Bose-Einstein condensate in an optical lattice is studied both analytically and numerically in all three dimensions. Our investigation shows that the sound speed depends strongly on the strength of the lattice. In the one-dimensional case, the speed of sound falls monotonically with increasing lattice strength. The dependence on lattice strength becomes much richer in two and three dimensions... Downloads: 2 | |

Zeng We considered the proposed Quantum Cable as a kind of transport spectroscopy of one-dimensional (1D) density of states (DOS) of cylindrical quantum wires. By simultaneously detecting the direct current through the cylindrical quantum wire and the leaked tunneling current into the neighboring wire at desired temperatures, one can obtain detailed information about 1D DOS and subband structure of cylindrical quantum wires.

| Disorder-induced phase transition in a one-dimensional model of rice pile - M. Bengrine We propose a one-dimensional rice-pile model which connects the 1D BTW sandpile model (Phys. Rev. A 38, 364 (1988)) and the Oslo rice-pile model (Phys. Rev. lett. 77, 107 (1997)) in a continuous manner. We found that for a sufficiently large system, there is a sharp transition between the trivial critical behaviour of the 1D BTW model and the self-organized critical (SOC) behaviour. When there is SOC, the model belongs to a known universality class with the avalanche exponent $\tau=1.53$. Downloads: 5 | |

Besides the steps of one or two quantum conductance units ($2e^2/h$), conductance plateaus of more than two quantum conductance units can also be expected due to the accidental degeneracies (cro...

When the frequency of the EM wave is tuned to satisfy the resonance condition in the strong coupling limit, the transition probability exhibits Rabi oscillation... Downloads: 4 | |

| Reply to "Comment on 'Detecting Non-Abelian Geometric Phases with Three-Level Λ Atoms' " - Y. X. Du In this reply, we address the comment by Ericsson and Sjoqvist on our paper [Phys. Rev. A {\bf 84}, 034103 (2011)]. We point out that the zero gauge field is not the evidence of trivial geometric phase for a non-Abelian SU(2) gauge field. Furthermore, the recalculation shows that the non-Abelian geometric phase we proposed in the three-level $\Lambda$ system is indeed experimentally detectable. Downloads: 2 | |

Similar to other parent compounds of iron-based pnictide superconductors, the pure SrFe$_2$As$_2$ shows a strong resistivity anomaly near 210 K, which was ascribed to the spin-density-wave instability.

The two phases thus coexist homogeneously at the microscopic scale.
